Alfred 2 vs Launch Bar 6

Have been trying to compare these both apps since I got the macbook pro. Finally found a very detailed video to make an informed decision. This video by Todd Olthoff helped a lot to understand the major differences between the both.

After watching the video, I have decided to give both of these a try for a month to make the decision. Since I have already used Alfred for some time now, I am trying out Launchbar. It is quite good so far, uses probably a tad bit more memory than Alfred but it is hanging in there. I just bought the  Alfred App :).

What is your preferred launcher app?

Clear iMessage chat history on Mac

If you have been wondering on how to clear the chat history on iMessage like me, Here is a quick command that you can execute in the Terminal to clear the history.

rm -r ~/Library/Messages/chat.*

What the command does is basically delete all the files that are named chat in your messages folder in your library. The command should work in OS X Maverics. If it worked for you in anyother OS X version do let me know in the comments.
